I must be retarded then, because that's not the best Loser. It wasn't even good enough to release on Dozin' at the Knick! It's a good one, but not the best one.

Those mid to late March '90 dates were my last 'tour' . They butchered that first CD on D@TKnick , only WIPMM and RJ were good /very good . ( They butchered the last really good show I saw as well , 9-19-90 - DBase 9 has an accurate accounting of that show ) As a personal side note for those of you w/ the CD , my very own wife is on CD 1 - the very beautiful , kind , gracious .... (she pops by once in a while - I mean it all honey). She's in the sweater , dark hair on the left . There are 2 other folks we know that are in other photos - all of which brings me back to my time on the road . We came in all bright-eyed ( literally - for years )and foolish as Touch -Heads in '87 ; and by '90 where 4 year vets . ( So many folks in my circle ended touring in '90 - '91 ) . The process , as in so many 'cultures', is the older educating the younger > Please don't urinate in those folks bushes . Please don't stand up/ walk around w/ nitrous ( 2 cracked heads in my time ). Please don't harass the cops and break down the gates . You can really see the disconnect when I've gone to post-GD shows ...... O.K. just one , I can't resist - Please this summer put your electronia away for 3 hours , you can do it ! Find some good folks to dance with and the time just flies - and you'll have double the fun . BTW - Hey honey , did they get you to sign a release for that photo ? Oh, forget it , the Marin Mafia ya'know .


Oh boy, maybe that was not the best thought out idea on my part . My Sweetie happened to inform me of a few things , of which I'll point out what could interest you . She is also on CD 2 , on the left - the sweater , her bag - getting a hug (not from me ). Our friend Wendy-Jo is also on the left , sitting down , in the back . And the guy on CD 3 , on the bottom left, I know you , man. Who are you ?

Thanks for the kind words, Micah6v8...but you forgot that I am on 2 CDs from that show! And I agree...put away your phones, find a place, and close your eyes and dance...you won't regret it. The boys were good this winter, I can't wait to see them again;)

I don't know if it is the absolute best, but it is odd that it didn't make the set .
I wonder if there were some technical problems ?
I am partial to Losers from 78 , , also like the s l o w Ten. Jeds from this year !

Me too. I don't think that version is even close to being the best. I can think of two or three from the 90s alone that are better -- not to mention the 70s and 80s.

Like this one for instance...
